Crude and Age-Adjusted Percentage of Adults Aged 18 Years or Older in the Civilian Noninstitutionalized Population Reporting both Diabetes and Visual Impairment, United States, 1997–2011
In 2011, the crude percentage of adults reporting both diabetes and visual impairment in the civilian noninstitutionalized population was 9.3%. Trends in the crude and age-adjusted percentage of people reporting diabetes and visual impairment were similar, suggesting that the aging of the population had little or no effect on trends during this time period.
